Taking hip action to another level

Posted By on Sat, May 5, 2012 at 5:00 AM

It may seem like having Latin American roots is a pre-req for salsa dancing skills, but not everyone with that heritage can twist and turn like there's no tomorrow. Salsa-Thon - Charlotte's inaugural Cinco de Mayo festival - rounds up folks, experts and amateurs, optimistic enough about their moves to show off in a contest with a two-person trip to Cancun up for grabs.

Now, that's something to dance about. In addition to the hip action, there'll be live music, Latin cuisine, cultural displays and vendors with arts and crafts. Free admission. May 5, 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Held Uptown at Tryon Street and 3rd Street. For more information, visit www.charlotte5demayo.com.
